Cloud9 are getting into the Overwatch scene as the organization announced they have picked up the entire Laser Kittenz roster and will be competing in Overwatch Contenders season one.
Jack Etienne, CEO of Cloud9, said in a statement..
“What Laser Kittenz were able to do in season zero grabbed everyone’s attention, myself included. From top to bottom, the organization proved themselves committed to competition, devoting their talent and time to earning their place in season one.”
Laser Kittenz impress everyone by placing third in season zero, losing to eUnited who went on to win the Overwatch Contenders championship. It’s also worth mentioning that former Laser Kittenz owner Ali Saba will stay with the organization as their Overwatch manager. Ali said..
“I’m happy to be able to fully focus on equipping us with the best possible chance at winning Overwatch League, and the road starts now with Contenders. Representing London is a dream come true and marks my return to the UK scene. I look forward to making all our fans proud.”
